Mean Girls ★★★★

You smell like a baby prostitute.
-Janis Ian

It seems like a different world in an alternate Universe. Lindsay Lohan was kinda cute, didn't look like she was on crack and people thought she had a promising film career ahead of her. To be fair, even though she's great in the part and the rest of the cast as well, the real reason this film is so good has less to do with them or even director Mark Waters and everything to do with the script written by Tina Fey.

Fey's story here, loosely based on the self-help book Queen Bees and Wannabes, manages to be a bit raunchy with rapid fire jokes and one-liners all the while having an "after school special" message at it's core. I mean seriously, a film about the trials and tribulations of teenage girl clicks in high school should not be this quotable and yet it is ("You go Glen Coco!"). Fey's script manages to entertain beyond the demographic this film should be for by a mile.

The supporting cast are also great with a lot of them going on to bigger and better things despite the obvious attempt at trying to turn this into a Lohan star-vehicle. Among them you have Rachel McAdams as the Queen Bitch, Amanda Seyfried who is hilarious as the Dumb Girl with her soulless eyes and of course there's Tina Fey and Amy Poehler who are practically household names now. Lacey Chabert is great here too, but unfortunately she's still just the little girl from Party of Five who voiced Meg Griffin on the two first seasons of Family Guy before the hotter Mila Kunis took over.
